Chris Conway
A musical and songwriting tour de force.
Some of Chris Conway's most powerful songs. Storming has a gutsy, dark and Celtic feel to it.

"… on an enjoyable and accomplished album "Storming", he purveys a lilting and melodic music of depth and emotion" 
- Time Out Magazine


background
In the early to mid 90s Chris was in a band The Storm Thieves - something of a Crosby Stills & Nash with Celtic touches. They recorded a number of cassette albums.

In 1995 The Storm Thieves had recorded half an album (released only recently as "Long Time") when Christo fell ill with exhaustion after a German and UK tour. By the time he had recovered things had moved on and it looked as if the Thieves tracks would just lie around forever.

CC took his tracks and combined them with tracks of his from Storm Thieves cassette albums plus a couple of other tracks he had in the can from elsewhere.

The idea was twofold - one, to tie up the whole of his Storm Thieves experiences and material together and, two, to present a more forceful darker side of his songwriting. The previous Flying Home was a mellow album and he felt he needed a stronger image and sound. Also after his illness, he had been thru dark times as well, so the dark album felt appropriate to the times.

The darker, more Celtic album which proved more popular at folk venues and was CCs calling card promotional CD for quite a while.

reviews
Time Out

"… on an enjoyable and accomplished album "Storming", he purveys a lilting and melodic music of depth and emotion" 

Rock'n Reel - John O'Regan  

"Chris Conway, American born but now resident in England is a name which is becoming something of a byword. From his work with Vikki Clayton and Baluji Shrivastav's Jazz Orient to his own solo albums of which "Storming" is number three. Conway's music is multi layered including elements of contemporary folk,jazz,oriental and traditional celtic music in a style which is refreshing and highly accomplished.
"Port Ul Mhuirgheasa" is a traditional tune exposed to a rock backing while "Road of Dreams" and "Carousel" both display a penchant for quality pop/folk songs with engaging hooklines."Long Day's Waiting" balances a brooding opening with a catchy ballad like chorus.
"Storming" is a powerful reminder of the all round talents that are Chris Conway's. There's something serious going on here."
